Nearly 10,000 people attended two sold out Frack Off! concerts at Margaret River over the weekend of November 26–27, highlighting the growing opposition to unconventional gas across Western Australia.

The concerts included performances by John Butler Trio, Mama Kin, Pigram Brothers and Ten Cent Shooters.

There were speakers from the three regions threatened by unconventional gas — the South West, Mid West and Kimberley.

Organiser of the event John Butler said the people of WA had sent a loud and clear message to the state government and the gas mining industry: “We don’t want fracking and unconventional gas mining in Western Australia.”
